Living your Values

With Candace Lightner

Founder of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). Successful Activist. Consult to Social Organizations.

Born in 1946, activist Candy Lightner spent her early life in California. She went to American River College in Sacramento and later married Steve Lightner. The couple had three children, twin daughters Cari and Serena, and son Travis. In 1980, her daughter Cari was killed by a drunk driver. Lightner formed Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to raise awareness on this problem and to fight for tough laws against offenders.

Candace was appointed to a national commission on this issue by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. The following year, Lightner left MADD. She has continued to work on social and legal issues as an activist since then. She also serves as a consultant to organizations and companies. She has been credited with saving over 400,000 lives.

 

At our core, each of us possesses a set of values that we deeply identify with. And yet, in our everyday lives, we drift away from our core from time to time. What might life be if we fused our every thought and action with our deeply-felt values? How can we change our outer world when it conflicts with our inner world? Join us in a conversation with Candace Lightner to discover the power and possibilities of living your values. She shares her story about overcoming personal loss and leading a social movement and gives us insight into what we can all do to be agents of positive change.

“You’re only as good as your values.”
